My thoughts:

How the Bunny Learned to Fly is an adorable rhyming book that tells the story of a bunny and his best friend, a robin. Each of them wants to be able to do what the other can do. The bunny wants to fly. And, the robin wants to explore the world as the rabbit sees it. The robin gives the bunny his wings so that he can fly. And, the robin can see the world from the ground level.

As they each experience the world from the other’s viewpoint, they learn to appreciate their differences and empathize with how the other feels. They realize that each person’s life is not perfect and is more hard work than they were aware. The friends became closer because they understood each other’s struggles and appreciated the hard work each went through.
